OLUWO OF IWO WARNS: "DECLARE WAR ON RITUAL KILLINGS NOW OR I LEAD A PUBLIC NATIONAL PROTEST"

... SAYS RITUAL KILLINGS, WORSE THAN KIDNAPPING


Popular Ondo Monarch, Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi, the Oluwo of Iwoland is still blowing hot over the incessant ritual murders that has been taking place around the country.

In a statement by the monarch’s press secretary, Alli Ibraheem, the Oluwo said:
“It is sad that no attention is paid by the federal government to prevalence ritual killings pervading our country. Thousands fall victim of ritual on daily basis but regrettably, no one condemns such. I’m not happy with the neglect of my outcry on daily killings of my sons and daughters by ritualists. These people are deadlier than Bokoharam and kidnappers. I will lead thousands of Nigerians with like minds on national protest against human ritualists and corrupt individual.

“Right now, as I’m talking, evil men are somewhere killing humans for rituals in the name of money and promotion. Few relate offering human for sacrifice as culture, no, it is an aberration to every culture. No culture accepts human as sacrifice.

The angry monarch appealed to the
federal government, to declare war against ritual killings. Strict penalty like death should be meted on any one culpable. Killers should be killed. Killing is not a forgivable offence. If federal government refuse, I will declare an open traditional war against ritualists and front a national protest.

The monarch called on socio-cultural groups to join the clarion call.

“The Afeniferes, OPCs, Agbekoyas and other pan Yoruba cultural groups should join the revolution against ritual killings. Many have gone to the journey of no return in the hands of ritual killers. It is pathetic, sad and calls for urgent legislation. Ritual killing is decimating our population daily. Must we continue watching the menace? Those in the government are not seeing what we see. Ritual murders is prevalent on the south west, south east. We must rise before it claim all out promising sons and daughters.

“I want to state it clearly here that killing human for rituals is not Yoruba culture. It is alien to our culture. Yoruba culture is pure, clean and attractive. Look at my dress, it is enticing, fascinating, ostentatious and attractive. Only the ignorance and enemies of Yoruba culture will relate ritual killings to Yoruba culture."
